Welcoming environment. Friendly and supportive staff and atmosphere from start to finish. Most important to me was the diversity of treatment options offered. Lucida took a holistic approach and offered me every imaginable avenue to fully begin my recovery. The clinical staff were top notch, and very professional yet relatable and comforting. The amenities were outstanding. Sometimes, between the different shifts and different departments, there were some communication gaps. However, these were usually resolved quickly and without major issue. I chose Lucida because they offered an actual dual-diagnosis treatment program. They did not merely claim to offer dual diagnosis and then have a psychiatrist throw some anti-depressants at me after a 5 minute interview. They took the time to discover and address my needs on every front. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and confident in approaching my recovery. In addition to the wonderful staff and strong dual-diagnosis program, I chose Lucida because it offered SMART Recovery as an option, instead of forcing every client into the 12 step program. SMART Recovery has been vital to my success in recovery. I cannot say enough positive things about Lucida. My time there allowed me to change my life. They helped me build all the tools I would need to live a positive and fulfilling life. I am eternally grateful for my time at Lucida and for everyone, staff and clients, that I met there. Going to Lucida was the single best decision of my life.

When I first arrived at Lucida, I had little hope for myself and near unattainable expectations for the staff there. I was, without a doubt, at the lowest point in my life, but they accepted me without pause. I began to think that perhaps I wasn't incurable after all --turns out I was more curable than I ever imagined. I spent two months recalibrating the way I thought about two decades of painful memories. The women's mood program introduced me to CBT, DBT, and built my self-esteem. One of the most important lessons I learned in my time there was the true benefit that complete honesty yields. With that in mind, I must say that my recovery was just as painful as my downfall at times. But, on the other side of letting go, there was freedom. All of my needs were met while I was in treatment. The housing was luxurious and well maintained, and our meals were prepared by wonderful chefs who took note of preferences (and even birthdays!). What surprised me was the relationships I made while I was there. I became close with most of the staff, as they were always willing to listen. They're not just staff, but family while you're there, and the alumni program is great for keeping in touch and successful in recovery. Choosing Lucida was the best decision I've ever made for myself. When I arrived, I wasn't sure what purpose there was to life. Leaving Lucida, I not only wanted to stay with the wonderful people I met, but I had no doubt of my purpose in life. I didn't have all of the answers, but I found joy in the search for them.
